We stopped after a quick Google check for breakfast places before heading home from a little visit to Pismo. We chose it because it was close to our hotel but we ended up being pleasantly surprised. The selections sounded so good, we had a hard time choosing something. When we did, we were not disappointed in the chicken fried steak... More

The delicious surfers breakfast fed two of us with leftovers that would have fed two more. The ham steak was great, the biscuits and gravy would make grandma jealous!!! The most painful part of breakfast was having to leave this deliciousness on the plate because we were so incredibly full. Friendly staff, clean environment a must try for anyone visiting... More

Service was Excellent and the food was even better! The Clam chowder was absolutely awesome. All of the wait staff worked as a team so you never had to look for your server if you needed anything

At this place you feel comfortable right away seeing that they know what they're doing! The service was good, quick, fun and friendly. The breakfast here was at our three week road trip absolutely the best! A visit that made great memories to us just for the experience (when back home far away from California). Thank you! :)

We stopped here for breakfast while in Pismo Beach. This is a cute diner and it was a perfect breakfast stop for us! I had The Local Favorite. I absolutely loved the omlette as it was very different and creative. I thought the sweet apples were such a fantastic topping for the omlette. I also ordered the biscuit and gravy,... More

This place was recommended by motel and we were not disappointed. Everything thing was excellent. Staff friendly, food came out fast, cooked perfect and large portions. Will definitely come back. It is walking distance from pier area but there is plenty of parking on street. Place is somewhat small inside with seating outside. Bottom line, can't go wrong coming here.

Meal was but it seems to me that they cater to the locals and just put up with the folks from out of town. I say that because we have been there a couple of times just to make sure we weren't wrong the first time.The waitress was so busy laughing and talking with some of the customers she seemed... More

I am so sorry of your disappointment. Can you tell me what your server looked like? I take my customers comments very seriously and my crew try very hard to make everyone feel welcome. I do admit we are not perfect but I hope you let us invite you back. All my Best, Penny More
